Ruta Panorámica Travel Guide

Aibonito to Adjuntas

Quite possibly the prettiest part of the Ruta Panorámica, the section running from Aibonito to Adjuntas takes you through Puerto Rico's mountain region and the Toro Negro Forest. The views from Aibonito to the midway point of this route open up onto sweeping panoramas of valleys; from the vantage point of your high elevation, the houses below look like tiny dots.

Be sure to stop

at the Mirador Villalba-Orocovis at Km 39.7 for some of the most spectacular views. This state-run overlook has ample parking and is open from 9 am until 5 pm, Wednesday to Sunday. In addition to the view, there's a playground and sheltered picnic areas. Don't worry if your visit doesn't coincide with the overlook's hours; there's plenty of room to pull over on the side of the road and you can still enjoy the view, surrounded by mountains on either side. It tends to be windy up here at 2,000 feet, so bring an extra layer of clothing.
